If you look at the 1940 census rolls its interesting how many electrical engineers and other high level electricians of sorts lived in the swankiest neighborhoods along with lawyers and doctors and film producers and the like. They were pulling in 3500 a yr then and that was a lot of dough. It's interesting how in those days things were fixed rather then tossed.

An informative film for its day. Many a boy who saw this probably took the hint and went on to live the high life.

Another chapter in the Your Lifes Work series, this vocational guidance film profiles the different kinds of careers in the electrical industry. This is pretty straightforward and ordinary, but it does have lots of interesting visuals of various electrical devices, guys repairing different kinds of machinery, and some cool neon signs. The narration is dull, but the visuals hold interest and provide a historically interesting look at electrical work and machinery in the 1940s.
Ratings: Camp/Humor Value: **. Weirdness: **. Historical Interest: ****. Overall Rating: ***.

A perfectly acceptable description of what is involved in the electrical field. should you choose a job in it. I imgaine these jobs and classes are still being used today. The film was somewhat interesting, although if this kind of thing totally interests you, then you will get more use out of it.
